Opportunity 1992. College Courses and the Single European Market.
Further Education Unit, London (England).
The completion of the single market by the end of 1992 will remove internal obstacles to the free flow of goods and services within the European Community. The implications for education and training, and in particular for those colleges selling customized updating and similar courses to companies and organizations, are far-reaching. This bulletin identifies those aspects of the 1992 reforms that are likely to affect colleges and other providers of education and training. It also considers changing training needs and looks at some models for curriculum development, with the emphasis on the kind of short course training being promoted by the United Kingdom's Department of Education and Science in its PICKUP updating skills program. Three case studies, involving community law and trading, language training, and quality assurance, are included in the paper. (KC)
